. . every industrialized country has that system except the united states. we are going to change that. national polls show that the majority of doctors and the majority of americans favor a single payer system. that is why six months ago, we went to capitol hill. when senator baucus opened that first day of hearing in may, i stood up and said, excuse me, sir, why have you taken single payer off the table? why have you not allowed one doctor testify for single payer? baucus ordered us arrested. one by one, margaret, kevin, carol, and four others stood up and confronted baucus. and one by one we were all arrested and charged with disruption of congress. in a plea deal earlier this year, we agreed not to disrupt congress throughout the end of this year. since that day in may, baucus and harry reid in the senate, and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer in the house have cobbled together incomprehensible legislation. it is convoluted and confusing. but one thing is clear -- president obama and the democrats have cut a dirty deal with the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries. obama took
to terrorist organizations, that directly threaten the security of the united states, it is essential that our government agencies are sharing information about such individuals. what happens been in the media these last days about major hasan and his behavior, if determined to be true, is very disturbing. such allegations as justifying suicide bombing on the internet, lecturing fellow soldiers using jihadist rhetoric, warning about adverse events if muslims were not allowed to leave military service, repeatedly seeking counsel from a radical islamic imam with well-known ties to al-qaeda. attempting to convert some of his patients who were suffering from stress disorders to his distorted view of islam and finally, was the fbi sharing with the army what it knew about hasan and aulaqi and was the army sharing what it knew about hasan with the fbi? while these patterns are preliminary and will be confirmed by the the investigations that are being conducted, it is very similar to what we experienced at fort bragg in the late '90s where we were wrongfully tolerating extremists in our organization w

in this new media. when somebody stands up in the congress of the united states during the state of the union and said, " ." >> nobody in the caucus supported what he did -- "you lie." >> nobody in the caucus supported what he did. the civility is not news. we try not to bash the media, hillary. we had an earlier conversation that talk about immigration reform where a truly bipartisan group of senators get together and all slated then, not quite, but there were in large number of democratic and republican senators working on it. that was in 2007. john mccain was simultaneously running for president. he and senator kennedy were the two leaders, the co-authors of the bill. you never saw them together in public however. kennedy said to mccain, look, we cannot show up in tv cameras together or you will lose new hampshire. it is how the press promotes incivility. >> the sense of being in the political minority, the only way you get hurt is to be no easier and more obnoxious. clearly, democrats, we did that -- we talked a lot about this during george bush's presidency. now republicans are doing a t
security interest of the united states. it is urgently needed. the president knows achieving this goal will be difficult, but he also has said that he will not waver in his persistent pursuit of a comprehensive peace in the middle east. for that reason, he has dedicated himself and his administration to the resumption of israeli-palestinian negotiations and the creation of an atmosphere that maximizes the prospects for success. . >> that is why we have been urged the palestinians to expand and improve their security effort, and to take strong and meaningful action. it is what we have an urged the arab states to take steps of normalization with israel. it is what we have urged israel to stop settlement activity. as i said earlier, while they fall short of a full freeze, we believe the steps announced by the prime minister are significant and could have substantial impact on the ground. for the first time ever the israeli government will stop housing approvals and on the construction of housing units. and related infrastructure in west bank settlements. that is positive development. he s
the last eight years united states has become cuba's principal food supply year and fifth largest trading partner, but americans cannot walk our streets or shop with our people. only recently we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall. it should be recalled that the iron curtain started to open up by millions of westerners visiting the country's. we are grateful to the politicians who carried out the policy that helped create the conditions for this peaceful outcome. americans played a significant role. today you have a similar opportunity regarding cuba. we are aware of the concern of many distinguished congress women and men of the financial the impact of american tourism on the cuban economy, fearing that the civility of giving birth to the totalitarian regime we believe that many thousands of americans visiting cuba would benefit our society and enhance our people. firstly through the free flow of ideas and further asking the government to open up and provide goods and services such as renting rooms because the capacities in the hotels would be surpassed. it wou
number of people in the united states who are related to each other and we just don't know it. >> tonight the woman who uncovered michelle obama's family ties will give us more detail and dig into my own roots. >> this, for example, is your grandmother. >>> this is your only source for news, cnn prime time begins now. here's campbell brown. >>> hi there, everybody. we start tonight, as always, with the mashup. we're watching it all so you don't have to and tonight after weeks of debate at the white house about what to do in afghanistan, the president has made a decision. the pentagon right now is drawing up plans to send about 34,000 u.s. troops to afghanistan and what that means is that young men and women from around the country will be packing up and shipping out very soon. president obama is expected to make the official announcement next tuesday in a prime time address. >> it is my intention to finish the job, and i feel confident when the american people hear a clear rationale for what we're doing there and how we intend to achieve our goals that they will be supportive. >> i antici

, the president should be aware the jobs people are worried about in the united states are getting people back to work. we have 15 million people out of work. our priorities are skewed here. we have things to take care of her at home. why are we worrying about afghanistan? it really raises questions about the extent of the pentagon's influence on the administration. >> why do you think the president is doing it? many people thought the president came from the same side of the tracks that you're on, generally speaking, in terms of the limits of u.s. power in the world and the need to rejoin the world community and not to be hawkish. what do you make of his decision? why do you think he moved that direction? >> well, i think it's going to be a tough one to defend. and you're right about the -- we've seen the limits of u.s. coercion, and this government in afghanistan is a corrupt government. everyone knows that. sooner or later, the kind of consensus government which afghanistan has had historically is going to have to be reinstituted so people in afghanistan will have control over their own des

governance. in other words, what is the role of the united states as a very significant shareholder in general motors. we're not looking at it from the auto industry but across the institution where we have a significant interest and what role the united states is playing in the management of those companies. the united states is the government the obama administration stated repeatedly that it wants to have the board run the company the way they deem appropriate and that's obviously a policy balance against the concerns raised by you which is taxpayer money being used to fund opal and make sure europeans maintain their jobs. we're going to do an audit product that really takes a look at what the obama administration has said its role is going to be and compare to what's actually happened and see how those match up and come up with some ideas and recommendations going forward. so we're going to take a look from an audit perspective but it's important to remember that when this money was invested, whether it was with general motors or citi or in the capital purchase program, differen

, the united states has been using a base technology to create vaccine. while it is safe and effective, it's a slow-moving process. across europe, vaccine developers are using the faster process of incorporating the million sales to grow the vaccine. as we begin to explore cell-based technology, i would pose the question will there be an adequate fda approval for this new vaccine? i'm also interested in hearing in the vaccine manufacturers from how they ramped up reduction in some cases to ten times their normal production schedule. we know that production of a delayed for h1n1, a harmful but relatively moderate virus compared to something more lethal like the spanish flu. but in the case of a stronger virus, the higher fatality rate, what our country be able to produce enough vaccine for everyone in a short time. here it so i look forward to questioning the witnesses, welcome them again, learning more about how we can improve vaccine reduction in our country and again thank the chairman for this joint an important hearing. i yield back. >> thank you ms. eshoo. gentleman from pennsylvania,

conversation, even though rick's not here, you can still call us, in the united states the number is 1-877-742-5751. >>> hey, rick, this is taylor, 35,000 more troops to afghanistan? no, we need to deploy them here and bring the troops over there here and take back our inner cities, fight the gangs, the crimes in our inner cities here, take care of home. >>> got a couple of big stories out of the white house today. it now turns out that the president is planning to make a personal appearance as a global climate change summit in copenhagen next month. and here's the real news t white house says that he is prepared to offer reduction of 17% in america's greenhouse gas emission, 17% below 2005 levels. that has potentially big ramifications, particularly for the cost of energy and the cost of doing business. but what's more important, your wallet or the earth? we'll be keeping an eye on that. >>> the other big story, afghanistan, the president's big announcement on troop re-enforcements is now set for tuesday evening, 8:00 p.m. eastern, from the campus of the united states military academy
and with the problem which is that the goals of pakistan are not the same as the goals of the united states. pakistan wants an afghanistan that is pliable which means they have supported the afghan taliban and supported the taliban to keep afghanistan on edge, to give them strategic depth. we need the pakistanies to cooperate with us. we need them to get tougher on terrorism. and, yet, they don't see their interests as exactly the same. how you support the pakistani government and try to get the pakistani army to do something but deep down they don't believe it is in their national interest is really in many ways the central problem in the afghanistan area. >> michael, despite what is currently happening in western pakistan against the taliban since 2001, pakistan's main focus which fareed eluded to is on an eastern boarder with india. is there any full cooperation with afghanistan? >> this is what america needs to understand. that u.s. troops are bleeding and dying in afghanistan. it's throes do with jihad. far less to do with osama bin laden and al qaeda. and almost everything to do with pakistani
and the last thing we need to do is see the united states fall into that trap when really, we should be focused on american security and the security of the american people and issues like health care are number one. >> jack rice, what does the president have to do to get a successful conclusion in afghanistan? he and the united states? will 35,000 more troops do it? >> no, it went. what we have decided is we have tied ourselves to an imp comp enter regime. that's a fact. whether we put 10,000 or 30,000 more troops in. one more little twist to this, one of the things that is apparently going to happen, we're going to focus in on the cities. you know who else tried that? the russians. the soviets did the same thing. they determined they couldn't do this, either. this is absolutely true. the britts invaded into afghanistan twice and lost. the soviets have done this. nobody has ever successfully taken afghanistan and frankly, i have a hard time believe thag the americans are going to be any different. >> here is the president yesterday giving us a preview. >> after eight years, some of those years
of the discussion has been around the fence that the united states wants to pursue a counterterrorism strategy where they target specific regions of afghanistan. there's an understanding that if you seven of troops to blame did the entire country that it would take something like half a million troops. nobody is talking about that. there are specific regions, especially in the southern part of afghanistan and, that they're talking about increasing the troops as a way of giving them more control over those regions and an ability to push back against the extremists, the taliban, and al-qaeda. host: what will he be asking of nato? guest: there have been many discussions over the past months to try to increase the number of troop commitments from nato countries as a way of allowing the united states to have slightly less of a commitment. in the speech, i think you will see a strong call from the president for the nato allies and the other allies around world to step up. host: thank you very much for being with us this morning, michael shear. there are a number of "washington post"front page stories. thi

pilgrims from 160 countries are here, including thousands from the united states. many have only their faith to protect them. as of this week, just 50 countries have the vaccine. the density of the pilgrims, the nature of the hajj rituals, the proximity in prayer, all provide what health officials say are the perfect conditions for spreading the h1n1 virus. what is the worst case scenario? our worst fear is that you will get a lot of cases, massive cases. >> reporter: for months, saudi officials have been working feverishly to contain the pandemic. each pilgrim is scanned. those who show flu-like symptoms are put in isolation for seven days. dozens of clinics are set up, stocked with the vaccine and tamiflu. motorcycle medical units reach severe cases quickly. the kingdom even brought in experts from the cdc in atlanta. >> there is no more stopping the spreading. what we do with a pandemic, whether it's the u.s., china or saudi arabia, hajj or olympics, is to reduce the burden. >> reporter: the pilgrims believe the only one who can control their fate is god. "it's all in the hand
, michael, on the side of the united states in terms of a commitment to afghanistan and that doesn't just mean our european allies but also pakistan where do we stand with that country? >> you know, i'm not sure what the latest is. clearly, the president has been -- the president and his top people have been pushing for months now greater cooperation from pakistan on helping to resolve this situation. obviously, you know, there's deep distrust between the pakistanis and afghanistan, especially the government in afghanistan now being as shaky as it is. one thing that did happen today, the brits announced that nato allies will be providing about an additional 5,000 troops, which gives president obama a little bit of wiggle room to maybe go somewhat lower than he might otherwise have, below the 40,000 that general mcchrystal originally subjected. >> michael shear and barry mccaffrey, thank you very much. happy thanksgiving to you. >>> following breaking news in utah county, a rescue team working to free a man trapped in a cave. the 26-year-old is stuck 150 feet underground in what's called t

here in the united states. you look at the todollar taking break and creating a lot of action for the big, multinational exporters. that's where it's going to be for the next several quarters. you're going to see an inventory build. slow, slow, it doesn't happen overnight, but you've got to manage risks. i don't agree on buying expensive, foreign stocks. >> what about the fact we've had this huge run-up in stocks? aren't you taking on a lot of risk? >> well, they cut them in half and are on sale. you've got low interest rates, staggering amounts of capital. $200 million in free reserves, don't discount that and the bears are crying all 4,000 points. it's this, it's that. little by little, people are sticking their toe by in. the bankrupt boys are going to lend again and it will return to normal. >> when you talk about risk, the emerging markets and overseas, yes, wonderful growth expected there, but still, incredibly volatile when you put people in those soectors, do you warn the? >> in our line of work, michelle, we are constant reallocators of our model. when we see huge inc
